Check it out, I've got a potentially very cool tool that will help you view us while we write for 16-hours starting tomorrow, Saturday, November 6th, Pacific Standard Time. Our hours are 7am - 11pm.
I've done a test run on this bad boy and have learned a couple of things: First, it occassionally times out and will show us offline. If that happens, just check back later and I'm sure we'll be back up and running. We cannot let technology impede us! We must work together if we want to conquer technological snafoos. Secondly, there are commercials. How annoying right? Right. The thing with that is simply we would prefer to use LiveStream for free with commercials than pay $350 for one month's use of it commercial free.So, be aware that every now and then a commercial will appear out of nowhere.
Lastly, and most important, we're writing. If you check in on us and think, man this is boring to watch, then you know, we're writing. However, we are a bunch of giggly girls so expect us to laugh and carry on about absolutely nothing also.
Before the start of NaNo I figured I could probably write 20,000 words in a 16-hour day based on what I know I can average per hour minus the breaks for food and whatnot. Now that I've started NaNo, I will be lucky to get 10,000 out by the end of the day tomorrow. Why? Just in the first 4 days I felt like I was crashing. I was exhausted. My brain knew what it needed to write but I couldn't picture the scenes in my head to write from. And I was only producing 4,000 words per day. However, I do have fragmented days with kids so my outside influences were definitely increasing my exhaustion. Tomorrow there will be no kids to distract me so my goal is to write 10,000 words in 16-hours, if not more. Every couple of hours I will post my word count with NaNo and you will be able to see on my sidebar what I've been able to accomplish.
If you could write for 16-hours, how many words do you truly believe you could pound out? Would you be able to write as many if you were in a group or would that number go down?
